People have gone to war over less.
what about when you drive 20 yards over the state line, have your picture taken by the "Welcome to South Carolina" sign and then leave, as my sister in law's now ex-fiancee did last summer just to tick another state off the list?

49 if you include the wonderful state of insanity right? I think you forgot to count the state you reside in Manc.

I would count it,a lthough this doesn't apply to any state I've visited. I don't, however, count states where my only "visit" is to change planes at an airport in it, without actually leaving the airport.

It can't be as bad as Maine in the winter. All the vertigo-inducing grey there actually caused my wife to have a few sensory illusions due to the loss of visual cues to orientation..I mean it's bad there

I'm sorry to hear that your sister's engagement fell through. Your next trip is to Ohio, right? You haven't been and I'm sure I could find at least a day's worth of neat stuff to show you.

I'm curious ... those of you who have only been to an Ohio airport, which Ohio airport did you visit?

For the travelers amongst us...

I'll begin by saying that I never intended to try to travel to all of them. My first half a dozen trips to the US (in the 80s and 90s) were all to Florida. Then I visited California and Nevada on my (first) honeymoon, then New York City shortly after we split up. It was after meeting the new Mrs tonrob-to-be that we decided to quit our jobs and go traveling for a year, 85 days of which was spend driving around the US.

Shortly after returning to the UK I joined a company with offices in New England, which led to trips across the pond that helped me scoop in all the surrounding states before finally moving here to live in 2005.

I have to say that I have never purposely gone out of my way to try to visit new states just to say I've been - in fact the last 'new' state I visited was Oregon in 2008. But yesterday, thanks to a couple of people dropping out at the last minute, a work colleague and fellow beer monster asked me to accompany him on a lightning trip to Winnipeg and Dubuque leaving Sunday.

Now Winnipeg I've been to before and it's a dump (although I have found a British pub near the hotel that also looks to be the only Beeradvocate listed pub in downtown Winnipeg - it serves beer from the local Half Pints Brewing Company and also has vindaloo on the menu). But Dubuque is where things get interesting. My ears picked up when I heard him mention it's in Iowa. That's a new state for me. But can you even begin to imagine my excitement when a glance at Mapquest shows that it's half a bloody mile from Wisconsin!!!

So by this time next week I'll be another 2 states down and just 8 to go:

North Dakota
South Dakota
Minnesota
Nebraska
Kansas
Missouri
Oklahoma
Alaska

Yay me.
28 states over the years.

My wife's sister, actually.
TBH we're all a bit relieved for various reasons. On top of the whole is-she-marrying-someone not-right-for-her issue I have to say Hawaii has never been near the top of my places I want to visit list.
